Several of the steering parts suppliers on the independent aftermarket have gradually built up a programme of reinforced steering parts. These alternatives are developed when it turns out that the lifetime of the original design does not meet expectations. At first glance, this sounds like good idea, but is it that simple - and what are our thoughts on this subject?
2018 was an exciting year for our industry as well as Triscan. New initiatives were launched, warehouses expanded and rebuilt, corporate structures changed, and of course we have added many new references in various product categories.

The media has continuously been reporting about 3D printing applications in various sectors for a long time. At Triscan we are following this trend closely. However, we're not just standing on the side line looking in - we do more than that.

The struggle for market share of the automotive aftermarket intensifies. Price, quality and delivery speed are very important parameters, but the ability to offer smart digital solutions - including car repair shop management systems, is getting more and more important. In collaboration with several wholesalers and an international network of experienced professionals with practical experience in the development of car repair shop management systems, we have developed a platform, which has internally been giving the name - TriSys. With this initiative, we, together with wholesalers and their car repair shop customers, want to secure market shares for the free aftermarket, which in more areas is under increasing pressure.
AUTO-G Denmark, part of GROUPAUTO International, has used the TriSys platform to develop their own car repair shop management system - Gplan. Anticipation has been high, ever since the introduction - and in just 6 weeks, 25 systems are up and running. We have visited C.B. Auto, which was one of the first car repair shops to use Gplan, to hear about their experiences.

Many workshops and wholesalers have gradually become acquainted with the frequently used EGR-valve that applies to diesel engines of the types 1.4, 1.6, 1.9 and 2.0 TDIs. Despite several attempts, VAG or other aftermarket actors have not succeeded in solving the problem. Based on our own technical studies, we in this article unveil why the EGR valve stops working too quickly.
It is not always certain that error codes give a true and fair view of which parts should be replaced to solve a problem. And all too often, this leads to questioning of the quality of the replaced part, which, logically, does not solve the real problem.
